Download Here

What this program does is generate thumbnails for your TV Series videos, and automatically tell MP TV-Series to use your generated thumbnails rather than only being able to use the ones from

Please let me know of any bugs or additions you would like to see!

Changes from 0.7 to 0.72:
· Added "Undo All Changes" button to undo everything ever changed by MP TV-Series Thumbnail Updater. Useful if you have accidentally set a thumbnail without adding the video's extension to the extensions list.
· Added "mkv" extension to default extensions. If you have previously used MP TV-Series Thumbnail Updater, this change won't happen, and you will need to add the mkv extension yourself.

Changes from 0.65 to 0.7:
· Video folder previously didn't save settings, now fixed
· Movie Thumbnailer command window now hidden and unobtrusive when run

Changes from 0.6 to 0.65:
· Made program start minimized to system tray

Changes from 0.5 to 0.6:
· Added "Movie Thumbnailer" automatic thumbnail generation to make this an all-in-one solution.

Open MP TV-Series Thumbnail Updater
Add any extensions that your videos might be in to the list on the left
Browse for your MP TV-Series database where it says "Database File" (typically found in c:\program data\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\database\TVSeriesDatabase4.db3)
Browse for your TV video directory where it says "Video Folder"
Set the timer at the bottom to the frequency you would like this program to create, search for, and set thumbnails (default is 60 minutes or 1 hour)
Minimize to send to your System Tray
Put in your Windows Startup folder

Map a network drive to your videos rather than simply using the shared folder. MP TV-Series doesn't like shared folders, but accepts mapped network drives.

Please do not rename your files or folders or move them to another folder after this program runs. I think that MP TV-Series won't replace the thumbnail path/filename if it is renamed, but it hasn't been tested either way.

Please make sure that your thumbnails are in the same directory as your episode video files, and that they are named identically (other than the extension). Movie Thumbnailer (embedded in this software) should automatically do this.

c:\TV\X-Men\X-Men.S01E02.avi (video file)
c:\TV\X-Men\X-Men.S01E02.jpg (thumbnail file)

Known Bugs (Not Fixable):
Once this program sets the thumbnail, MP-TV Series will no longer be able to download the thumb from for this particular episode. This is due to the fact that once MP TV-Series's database has a thumbnail file to reference, it no longer looks for a new one.

I know what some of you are thinking, "Why not just upload them to" Well, I was, until they deleted the tv series that I was updating. After I became frustrated enough with all that, I decided to take matters into my own hands and start on this.
